Morning news and notes for Wednesday, February 26, 2020
The Indians beat the ChiSox 10-2 yesterday, behind a pair of Franmil Reyes doubles, a solo Christian Arroyo home run, and shutout pitching by eight different dudes (of nine).
Tribe third basemen had fun Tuesday, with Arroyo replacing José Ramírez who also had two hits. The most important pitchers of the eight who threw scoreless ball were Shane Bieber, Brad Hand and Scott Moss. Moss struck out three in 1.2 innings of work to account for a third of the Tribe pitchers’ strikeouts on the day.
